Apryl Fool

Late ’60s Japanese psychedelic blues rock group who released one self-titled LP in 1969. There has been a recent surge of interest in the band following their inclusion in Julian Cope’s seminal ‘Japrocksampler’. This stuff is pretty derivative, but done in a wacky OTT way with enough Japanese “other”ness for it to be drooled over by “rare groove” enthusiasts. There are some genuinely innovative, genuinely exciting groups mentioned in Japrocksampler (Speed, Glue And Shinki!). These guys weren’t really that.
